this was 12/12/73. There was a long soundcheck prior to the show which had Jerry telling Keith what key the song was in. Later that night, they busted it out.

thanks for that ... regardless of the relevance to this post.


i like this soundcheck and the show looks good too -- real nice 73 sound again, i could use a dose right about now.... (of some 73 i mean.... not just a Dose)


THERE IS LOTS of great noodling going on from Jer here. before the "rip it up" there is lots of noodling between jer and keith. at first jer is picking along on a CHRISTMAS theme and then there are hints of Jack-a-Roe! a bit of Bluegrass Twangery... and then they go into "JAZZ STANDARD" mode, and Jer plays very straight, like Pat Martino or something....


GREAT! thanks......

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: YESSSS! ........... truly like pat

wow -- nice call man! i was searching a bit for a comparison, for JERRY's pseudo jazz style and for lack of anything better, i went with Pat Martino -- but i think this video REALLYmakes the point --

for a rock band, jerry was unusual, playing lead guitar like a HORN -- and these pat martino videos show that sort of approach taken to A WHOLE.....NUTHA....... LEVEL! jerry could play in a similar style to this but he would sound like a hot Bluegrass Picker -- not as JAZZY as pat -- but yet, THE TONE is very similar, and the ONE-LINE Horn Player type of approach -- AND YES, whether true or not, Pat plays like a CAT who has smoked his share of joints.....

would have been fun to hear him sit in on a gooey 73 Playin..... pat martino

This is weird ... I know that I have that soundcheck somewhere, attributed to 12-12-1973, BUT the official site says the first performance was two days earlier. 12-10-1973 used to be available in the GD download series; I don't know how to find it now ...

It's up here somewhere - I got it here as filler on another show but I have no idea what show. I'll check my itunes tonight at home and see if it gives any clues, but I suspect I may not still have complete info ...

I've got a WAY hissy version tacked on as filler to a cassette I got a million years ago but never knew what date it was from all these years. Want it?

Just kidding ( about offering it, the rest is true ).
